The claim was that the quality of the movie/show/anime is better when watched in Japanese. After I watched a few English dubbed and compared them, I found I had to agree. The translation in the subtitles isn't always entirely accurate, but then the translation to the dub isn't always accurate either, and then you don't even have the original Japanese to compare it to. Plus, the English voices are almost always more annoying.
ya i agree a lot of dubbed can be downright awful but there are certainly a few that are done rather well. inuyasha,ghost in the shell,evangelion, full metal alchamist, morbito are a few that are done fairly well.
my favorites are defently ghost in the shell and evangelion as far as anime goes. heck as far as tv shows go period they are my two favorite.
morbito is pretty good. ya i enjoyed inuyasha used to watched it constantly on adult swim. cowboy bepop and trigun are amazing too. blue drop is pretty good too.
bleach i cant watch anymore same with naruto and of course dbz started it all for me
